A Pasadena man was killed yesterday evening when he was struck by an Anne Arundel County police car responding to a domestic problem at an Edgewood Avenue home in Pasadena, police said.

Sgt. William Krampf, a police spokesman, said an Eastern District officer was driving to the 7700 block of Edgewood Ave. about 5: 30 p.m. when a man stepped into the path of the patrol car in the northbound lane of Edwin Raynor Boulevard near Bradley Road and was struck. Krampf said the car's lights and siren were on.

Krampf said the pedestrian, whose identity was withheld pending notification of relatives, was pronounced dead at the scene. The officer, whose name was not released and who is assigned to the district's Quick Response Team, was not injured, Krampf said.

Krampf said the accident is being investigated.

He said the domestic incident ended with the arrest of a man who had barricaded himself in a home.

The man, who had threatened to kill himself, was admitted to North Arundel Hospital for psychiatric evaluation.
